Not gulls already!

Had this unusual moulting 'herring' gull (top pic) today with reduced black in the wingtip, darker upperparts, bright pink legs and a 'thayeri'-type pattern on p9 (God knows!) and also looks like Common Gull (pic 2) numbers are increasing.

But winter is not hear yet- Siskins along the path, an increase in Song Thrush, Blackbird and Robin numbers, Mipits going over and Goldcrests calling from the hedgerow means that late autumn is beginning.
